Re: Problems with installation and VESA

i had basically two problems: 1) "gpart add -s 37944M - t freebsd-ufs -i 1 /dev/ada0s4 ERROR" no installation at all 2) "Since video card is an AGP Ati radeon, card is not supported". -> radeonkms.ko depends on drmn.ko that is not present in /boot/kernel (there is drm2.ko,instead, but, still...)

Re: Some more packages in vanilla distro I'd like...

Thank you! :) About boot splash screen, if you think could be useful, you could consider a script I wrote for FreeBSD, to use whichever image with whichever resolution as splash screen (and possibly using a text on it) https://sites.google.com/site/vaisarger/my--scripts/mksplashimage (it depends on ...

Re: Problems with installation and VESA

About installation unsuccessful, this is always last GBI command (in the log file) : gpart add -s 37944M - t freebsd-ufs -i 1 /dev/ada0s4 ERROR Two notes: 1) Fourth slice is a FAT32 partition: it is not already UFS formatted 2) The only time I succeded in installing the system was for entire disk.

Re: would radeon card work if recompiling the kernel?

would radeon card work if recompiling the kernel?

Support for ATI radeon cards there isn't anymore. However, it's a pity reading in Xorg messages that radeon driver does support all those ATI card, but kernel compiled in "make.conf" with "NEW-XORG=YES" and "KMS=YES" uses radeonkms instead, that complains about a drmn.ko that doesn't exist in system...
